Downtown celebrates Pancreatic Cancer Awareness DayFargo, ND (WDAY-TV) - Downtown Fargo will be bustling with shoppers and walkers tonight, and parts of Broadway will be drenched in purple.
By: WDAY Staff Reports , WDAY
We begin tonight with a new color in Downtown Fargo.
It's all about "purple," and a cancer that's known as the silent killer: Pancreatic cancer.
The HoDo drenched in purple light this evening, as downtown hosts its first ever, Pancreatic Cancer Vigil and Walk. The event begins at 6:30 at Sanford, with a short program.
A walk from Sanford to the HoDo follows.
The color purple is used to mark this special month, where there is a focus on pancreatic cancer.
Only 6-percent of those with the disease live beyond 5-years.
Tonight's vigil and walk is to show support for those families devastated by pancreatic cancer.
The walk from Sanford to the HoDo begins in about 40-minutes.
